Fake Dead Gf

neither of them bother me
but lance Armstrong is definitely a bigger deal

lance armstrong, since he is more well-known. i can't respect a cheater. faking a dead girlfriend is wrong too, but it doesn't give you an unfair advantage over other athletes.

I have never heard of the second guy. Therefor Lance Armstrong bothers me more.

I only just read up on the fake dead girlfriend one.

That one doesn't bother me in the same sense that Lance armstrong does. neither bother me overly. but the fake dead girlfriend isn't his fault.

Not to defend the guy, but when the entire sport is on PEDs, how is Armstong also taking them giving him "an unfair advantage"?

I think Armstrong's biggest fault through this is being a complete dick to everyone who tried to tell the truth for the past ten years.

The fact that he sued people claiming he was doping himself bothers me more.

Well, I include that as part of being a dick.

Can't believe a fake gf bothers most people more (acc. to this poll). No comparison really. 7 fake tour wins. Much bigger deal, though I agree with an earlier post that pointed out if doping was so pervasive then it probably wasn't an advantage.

cheating to win in competition is a far worse offense, i agree. for those who voted for the fake dead girlfriend, what gives?

is it even clear that Manti Te'o lied about anything? last I heard, nobody knew if he was in on the hoax or not

Well, he continued to answer questions about the dead girlfriend for a couple of weeks after he 'found out' that it was a hoax. Apparently he came clean to his coach in late December but didn't say anything publicly and continued to tell the media the same stuff as usual about it for the last several days leading up to the championship game.

Yes Te'o lied
But what he did isn't horrible, stupid? yes. Horrible? No
Lance now, fake hope to cancer survivors/patients? He gave them (including my sister) that
Lied and cheated to win? He did that.
Shouldn't even be close, Lance's situation is way more awful than Te'o

As far as I can tell, Te'o's only crime was being stupid enough to call someone his girlfriend before even meeting here, and then being too embarrassed to own up to falling for the hoax.

Neither of them bother me, but the only one that has to do with sports is Armstrong and doping. The other is a guy who was duped who happens to be an athlete.

Neither of them bother me either. Football dude was probably just trying to save face. I dont get how anyone could be upset by that, if anything *he* is the only person who should be.

Armstrong was most likely just in it for the money/fame, but he also inspired huge masses of people and raised a ton of money for causes as well. It kind of comes with the territory of competitive sports. Im not condoning it, Im just not surprised or upset by it.
